DaMarcus Beasley has definitely been included in the squad of the United States of America that will take part in the World Cup 2006 in Germany. Bruce Arena, coach of the USA, has named a 23-man squad and the PSV winger is one of them. FC ADO Den Haag player Cory Gibbs and former Ajax player John O'Brien, who made a move from FC ADO Den Haag to Chivas USA last month, have also been called up. Bruce Arena will be the coach with most years of service of all coaches at the World Cup 2006. He has been in the service of the American Football Association since 1998. Beasley is Team USA regular. "We are very clever and make hardly any mistakes. I think it’s wonderful you can such things about your own team”, announced Beasley. He also showed his skills at the World Cup 2002 in Japan and South Korea. "I think that the way we defend will be of paramount importance for us to achieve successes. You can only win trophies if you can count on a solid defence. So we may have chances to perform well, if our defence meets expectations. I feel we have enough quality players in midfield and in attack to create chances. We did not have that many quality players four years ago and our game plan mainly focused on defensive play. But we are going to approach each and every game in a different mood and we will certainly show attacking ideas”, said Beas. Bruce Arena is the first coach who has spoken in all candour. "Today we will start the preparations for a new adventure. You know it is not our habit to make any predictions. But I can assure you that Americans can be proud of the team that is fielded when we meet the Czech Republic on 12 June next”, announced Arena. The young talented player Freddy Adu has not been called up for the squad and he has not been named as one of the thirteen substitutes, either. Veteran goalkeeper Tony Meola, though, is one of those substitutes.
